 1.  Pihkal: A Chemical Love Story

Shulgin, Alexander, and Shulgin, Ann, and Nichols, David E, Ph.D. (Foreword by) Transform Press 1990 963009605 Trade paperback

New 

PiHKAL is a 1991 book by Dr. Alexander Shulgin and Ann Shulgin about psychedelic phenethylamines. The full title of the book is Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved: A Chemical Love Story. The book is arranged in two parts. The first part is a fictionalized autobiography of the couple. The second part contains detailed synthesis instructions for over 200 psychedelic compounds (most of which Shulgin personally invented), including dosages, subjective experiences, and other commentary. Shulgin's choices of synthesis procedures in the second half of the book are themselves perhaps a small act of subversion: While the reactions are beyond the ability of people with no chemistry education[citation needed], they tend to emphasize techniques that do not require difficult to obtain chemicals. Notable among these are the use of mercury-aluminum amalgam (an unusual but easy to obtain reagent) as a reducing agent and detailed suggestions on legal plant sources of important drug precursors such as safrole. 
Price: 24.50 USD

 
 2.  Pihkal: A Chemical Love Story (Hardcover, Slipcased, Signed & Limited Edition!)

Shulgin, Ann & Alexander Hardcover

Brand New 

PiHKAL: A Chemical Love Story is a book by Dr. Alexander Shulgin and Ann Shulgin which was published in 1991. The subject of the work is psychoactive phenethylamine chemical derivatives, notably those that act as psychedelics and/or empathogen-entactogens. The main title is an acronym that stands for phenethylamines I have known and loved. The book is arranged into two parts: 1. A fictionalized autobiography of the couple. 2. Detailed synthesis instructions for over 200 psychedelic compounds (most of which Shulgin discovered himself), including bioassays, dosages, and other commentary. Shulgin's choices of synthesis procedures in the second half of the book are themselves perhaps a small act of subversion: while the reactions are beyond the ability of people with no chemistry education,[citation needed] they tend to emphasize techniques that do not require difficult to obtain chemicals. Notable among these are the use of mercury-aluminum amalgam (an unusual but easy to obtain reagent) as a reducing agent and detailed suggestions on legal plant sources of important drug precursors such as safrole.

 3.  Tihkal: A Continuation

Shulgin, Alexander, and Shulgin, Ann, and Perrine, Daniel M (Foreword by) Transform Press 1997 963009699 Illustrated. Trade paperback

New 

TiHKAL is a 1997 book written by Alexander Shulgin and Ann Shulgin about a family of psychoactive drugs known as tryptamines. A sequel to PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), the full title of the book is Tryptamines i Have Known And Loved: The Continuation. TiHKAL, much like its predecessor PiHKAL, is divided into two parts. The first part is a fictionalized autobiography, continuing where PiHKAL left off, but it then continues into a collection of essays. These essays range from psychotherapy and the Jungian mind to the prevalence of DMT in nature, ayahuasca and the War on Drugs. The second part of TiHKAL is a detailed synthesis manual for 55 psychedelic compounds (many discovered by Alexander Shulgin), with dosages, chemical structure and qualitative comments. Like PiHKAL, the Shulgins were motivated to release the synthesis information as a way to protect the public's access to information about psychedelic compounds, a goal Alexander Shulgin has noted many times. [1] Following a raid of his laboratory in 1994 by the United States DEA, [2] Richard Meyer, spokesman for DEA's San Francisco Field Division, stated that It is our opinion that those books are pretty much cookbooks on how to make illegal drugs. Agents tell me that in clandestine labs that they have raided, they have found copies of those books. This attitude emphasized Shulgin's need to release the information to ensure its preservation, and led to the release of TiHKAL and his other publications.

TiHKAL is a 1997 book written by Alexander Shulgin and Ann Shulgin about a family of psychoactive drugs known as tryptamines. A sequel to PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), the full title of the book is Tryptamines i Have Known And Loved: The Continuation. TiHKAL, much like its predecessor PiHKAL, is divided into two parts. The first part, which all rights are reserved for, is a fictionalized autobiography, continuing where PiHKAL left off, but it then continues into a collection of essays. These essays range from psychotherapy and the Jungian mind to the prevalence of DMT in nature, ayahuasca and the War on Drugs. The second part of TiHKAL, which may be distributed for non-commercial reproduction with several conditions (see external links below), is a detailed synthesis manual for 55 psychedelic compounds (many discovered by Alexander Shulgin), with dosages, chemical structure and qualitative comments. Like PiHKAL, the Shulgins were motivated to release the synthesis information as a way to protect the public's access to information about psychedelic compounds, a goal Alexander Shulgin has noted many times.[1] Following a raid of his laboratory in 1994 by the United States DEA,[2] Richard Meyer, spokesman for DEA's San Francisco Field Division, stated that It is our opinion that those books [referring to the previous work, PiHKAL] are pretty much cookbooks on how to make illegal drugs. Agents tell me that in clandestine labs that they have raided, they have found copies of those books. This attitude emphasized Shulgin's need to release the information to ensure its preservation, and led to the release of TiHKAL and his other publications.
